|Michael Caine as Peachy Carnehan and Sean Connery as Daniel Dravot Esq. in John Huston's classic film adaptation
of Rudyard Kipling's short story The Man Who Would be King.
Daniel Dravot: Now listen to me you benighted muckers. We're going to teach you soldiering. The world's noblest
profession. When we're done with you, you'll be able to slaughter your enemies like civilized men.
Peachy Carnehan: Danny's only a man. But he break wind at both ends simultaneous - which is more, I reckon, than
any god can do.
It is an interesting bit of trivia that in the 1950s when Huston first considered making this film he planned on casting
Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart in the lead roles. He later also considered Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
This still was used by the SFM Holiday Network for promotional purposes during that company's cable television
release of the film.
